Wordy Wednesday: Ronald Reagan

  • Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
  • We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
  • Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
  • If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.
  • Government is like a baby: an alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.
  • Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.
  • A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.
  • Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.
  • A hippie is someone who looks like Tarzan, walks like Jane and smells like Cheetah.
  • Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book.
  • It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.
  • We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.
  • We are never defeated unless we give up on God.
  • The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.
  • We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we will always be free.
  • The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.
  • Some people wonder all their lives if they’ve made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.
  • How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
  • Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.
  • I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the US Congress.
  • Welfare’s purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence.
  • I’ve never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a ‘fat cat’ and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a ‘public-spirited philanthropist’.
  • Man is not free unless government is limited.
  • I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there’s purpose and worth to each and every life.
  • Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.

  • Shake shack opened a location near my apartment so I’m just looking at my feet while I can still see them before I gain the inevitable 90 lbs
  • Tbt to the time I searched every floor of union station for a Cinnabon then ended up paying $9 for the most disgusting steak and cheese I’ve ever encountered
  • Is it really Veterans Day if you don’t post a granddaddy pic? It’s easy to get wrapped up in feel good quotes and talking points on Veterans Day — and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a day we set aside to celebrate the men and women that decided to put service above self. But if we’re truly going to honor service and sacrifice, we don’t stop at what feels good or what’s easy to talk about — we address veteran homelessness, veteran suicide, post deployment reintegration, VA reform — and most importantly we resist unnecessary war that puts our troops in unnecessary danger. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
  • My sandwich a lil ugly just like me 😛
  • You, an idiot and a plebe: divided by politics
Us, scholars of noble upbringing: divided by Nicki Minaj vs cardi b
  • No matter what happens tonight, I don’t have to listen to/watch political ads for another year and a half and that’s something to drink to
  • I feel like God makes sure to plop a good sunset in front of me at least once a week so I don’t go postal
  • Friday I had ice cream for breakfast and ate pizza for lunch and dinner because I’m a woman in crisis but im gonna keep telling myself carb addiction beats meth addiction until I need those wheel chair shopping carts at the grocery store 🤷🏾‍♀️
